Father's Day is just around the corner, and many electronics retailers have begun offering promotions for those looking to pick-up a last minute gift for the Dad in your life. Amazon is one retailer participating in this promotional holiday and has temporarily discounted their highly popular Echo device line by up to 22%.
Those unfamiliar with Amazon's Echo, it is a smart speaker system that utilizes their proprietary Alexa smart assistant technology. This limited-time only sale goes on until the 17th and offers the following discounts:
- Amazon Echo Dot – $39.99 ($10 off, regularly $49.99)
- Amazon Tap – $99.99 ($30 off, regularly $129.99)
- Amazon Echo – $139.99 ($40 off, regularly $179.99)
We previously reviewed the Echo when it first launched and found it to be a solid, smart home device although its initial partnerships were too limited to support the price.
Since then, Amazon has partnered with many content providers (Spotify, DISH, iHeartRadio, Pandora, etc.) as well as a wide variety of smart home products (LIFX, Philips Hue, Nest, Wink, TP-Link, etc.).
Savings like this on Amazon's Echo products is a rare occasion typically only happening for major events like Black Friday/Cyber Monday so act fast and get one of the best smart assistants on the market while keeping some extra cash in your wallet!
